girl mellophone here!
Yesterday, I was happy because the previous day I'd made some new friends on the Ning, and the giddiness from it carried out into the next day. Also, I'm generally really shy so people assume I don't ever want to talk, and whenever I have something to say they either ignore me or or are kind of like "Uhhuh" with a distracted expression on their face. So yesterday I actually had a few good conversations without stuttering or getting discouraged or anything :-). I'm really extroverted in front of my family or really really close friends and whenever I have a random bout of extroverted-ness at school, there's no one around to share it with, so that made me happy.
Also, I've learned that it's little things that can make someone happy. It doesn't necessarily have to take a lot of effort and time to make someone smile.
That's great, Nadia! I'm not shy myself but I have a lot of friends who are that way and I always find I get closer to them then I do to the so-called "outgoing" people because when they do open up, they really open up, instead of just putting on a face like you see a lot of people doing.
Yeah, it doesn't take a lot of effort to make someone smile, but whatever effort you do put in is totally worth it.
